4 pieces to add to your spring wardrobe

7th September, 2016


A new season is a great time to hit refresh on your wardrobe but with the range of trends hitting the stores now it can be hard to pinpoint just which pieces your wardrobe will need throughout the next few months. If you’re looking for the top trends for spring look no further than these four pieces…

Slip dress

The ’90s trend has really hit with everything from chokers to floral dresses making their way into our wardrobes. However if there’s one piece that you’ll be guaranteed to get plenty of use out of it’s a great slip dress. A simple black number can easily be worn on its own or teamed with a t-shirt for the ultimate in ’90s combinations. Throw on a bomber, denim or leather jacket over it and you can easily dress it up or down according to the occasion. When teamed with a blazer (to really be on trend try a double breasted cut) it instantly looks polished. It’s a piece that will easily be on high rotation.


This time around ruffles are bolder and more structured and are making their way into everything from dresses to tops and skirts so you’re guaranteed to spot the trend everywhere. When it comes to wearing ruffles be sure to keep the rest of your outfit pared back to allow it to be the focal point of your look – it’s quite dramatic so you don’t want it to overwhelm.

Wide leg pants

Cropped wide leg pants are a fresh addition to your wardrobe for summer. With an alluring flash of ankle it can be teamed with everything from sandals, to statement heels and sneakers. The best bit is its both office and weekend appropriate so you’ll be guaranteed to get plenty of wear out of it. A navy pair is a great option to have in your wardrobe as it’s so versatile but don’t be afraid to experiment with a printed pair for a fun look.

Off the shoulder

Ah the off the shoulder trend. It’s certainly not showing signs of going away anytime soon. Whether you dabble in the trend with a top or dress, the style will certainly be everywhere this season. It’s a piece that can easily be dressed up or down and looks particularly chic in a crisp white. There are plenty of great prints and colours available in store now so you’re sure to find one to suit your style.

What I Wore: Black Lace

This Bec and Bridge is the latest result of my continuing love affair with off the shoulder pieces. It’s a great update on the little black dress and teamed with my favourite Aquazurra fringe heels and cat-eye sunglasses from Preen it gives it a playful touch. I’ve kept the outfit quite simple by sticking to the one hue head-to-toe and pairing it with my black Proenza Schouler clutch. I wore this out to a lunch event but it only needs a blazer to take it from day to night.KATE W-5KATE W-6KATE W-7KATE W-9KATE W-10

It’s funny how a particular trend comes into play and all of a sudden it’s just about the only thing I want to wear. Case in point: I have fallen hard for the current off the shoulder trend. I’ve had the above skirt in my wardrobe for awhile but teamed with a top in an off the shoulder silhouette it all of a sudden feels fresh and modern. The above Marks and Spencer top is the ideal cut, colour and fabric to easily transition it from work wear to weekend wear so I’m getting plenty of mileage out of it. As the outfit is quite neutral in tones, to add a touch of colour, I’ve teamed it with a playful pair of Preen sunglasses and a colourful Chanel clutch
